How can I leave home for uni and apply for a student loan without informing my parents?Legally can I apply without my parents income ?
I know I can leave you f I’m 18 without them stopping me but is their a place I can go ?

If you apply without your parents providing their income information then SFE will assume that your family is wealthy and you will only get the basic loan amount.
It’s possible to be classed as an independent student if you are estranged from your parents - but for that you need someone (a teacher or social worker) to provide evidence that you are estranged with no contact for over 12 months. So you would need to move out to a job/benefits for a gap year before you would be able to get the full loan.
